The table is more than two metres long but that is only a fraction of the distance between this classic and its rivals, which have tried to imitate its simplicity. Say no to convention and yes to class.
What started as another experimental piece in 1964 turned out to be one of their most popular tables. If you are planning to use this gorgeous Eames table to hold meetings or serve dinner, you might as well get ready to fall in love with the matching chairs. You can view them later but now you know: this table collects chairs and people and cries out to be used for meetings and culinary delights.
Charles, 1907-1978 (United States) - Ray, 1912-1988 (United States)
Charles Eames was an American designer and innovator who pioneered new techniques, such as the fibreglass and plastic resin moulding and wire mesh frames. He usually worked alongside his wife, Ray, though he is often credited alone. In the 1940s, the designers began focusing on the new plastics and were excited by the properties the material held. They were able to mould the plastics into organic shapes that followed the shape of the body. This discovery led to a whole new look in furniture that perfectly captured the spirit of the times. The couple’s most iconic designs include the DAR chair, the DSR Dining Chair, the RAR Rocker, the DSW Dining Chair, the EA 108 Office Chair and the Wire Base Table. Many of these were first presented at the New York Museum of Modern Art’s Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition in the late 1940s.
